    Well my two are going to start competing full time next year. Which is great. Then a friend from high school who isnt a shooter asked if I could help her kids too as their father has no interest. Not a problem. Happy to help. So fair warning, if you see me running around like a chicken with its head chopped off next year its because there will be 6 new sass shooters under 14 somewhere close by. Oh and my wife has decided to shoot gf now and wants help with that.... There will be no rest for me next year I'm thinking.

    Well for one thing, the servers, technicians and software that keeps the SASS Wire running. For another, the staff that handles all the day to day operations, keeps track of all the alias' so that there's no duplication, who get those SASS badges and Regulator badges made. The staff that publishes the many Handbooks, SHB, RO courses, WB HB, WB RO courses, Cowboy Clays, multiple translations, that the ROC works so diligently on throughout the year. The ones who represent SASS at many gun shows and gatherings across the country, the same ladies that haul steel so folks can shoot EoT. The staff that makes the Chronicle that everybody can see... it doesn't layout and publish itself. The staff that battles local politicians and disgruntled neighbors that want to close down Founders Ranch. The ones who work tirelessly behind the scenes keeping an organization going, without much thanks from it's members...

    Gun Control is the theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to the police how her attacker got that fatal gunshot wound. Cat Brules

    That would be me. I spin them every time. Then I index, take it to full cock and lower the hammer on the empty. Works like a charm.

    I don't think any specific rule change is necessary. My opinion: I would vote NO RESHOOT based on the one shooter having a problem navigating the stage in the manner described by the OP. BUT...because that particular situation deemed it a safety issue that it was later removed for everyone else, then YES, I would vote for a RESHOOT under those circumstances. AND furthermore, I would allow those who already shot the stage an option for a reshoot OR, throw out the stage for EVERYONE. ..........Widder

    Total rebranding of SASS. Marketing blitz. Required target sizes and distances, not recommendations, if it's going to be a legitimate shooting sport it has to require a certain skill set. Get rid of some restrictive rules, shoot with some movement. One or two steps isn't a big deal. Monthly newsletter not a magazine, something simple to get people interested and include links to full articles and other info. EOT needs to be in a more centralized location. Reduce annual fees. No extra charge for annual and above shoots. Regional shoots are not centralized in the regions. Either move Regions or shoot locations. HQ needs to listen to the shooters. $1.00 from every shooter goes to SASS from every monthly match, this will get money from Lifers, non-members, and current members, should offset the reduction in annual dues. Pay to play. National scoring data base.

    Had a guy show up at one of the last End of trails in Norco. Someone mentioned he looked like a movie star. He said,"Which one, Robert Redford, Henry Fonda, Tom Selleck?" His wife stepped back and look hard at him and finally said, "More like Agnes Moorhead."

    Re: Hollywood and military accuracy, I recall when Top Gun came out, I was one of the Army guys going through the Naval War College at the time and naturally among a number of Navy pilots. To the man, they complained about the inaccuracy of this and that. They finally got a chance to talk with the Captain, a Top Gun Graduate himself and the technical advisor for the movie. Well, he listened to all their complaints and had to agree that there were many inaccuracies but his final response was one for the books, "Men, I had a hard time keeping them from making it into a musical!!!" I thought that was great!

    I’ve tried these “delicacies” a time or two and find that my palate isn’t sophisticated enough to appreciate them. I LIKE that flavor that flame or scorching hot cast iron adds to a cut of meat, fish, or poultry. Come to think on it, it’s a tasty addition to reptile or amphibian too!! The raw or uncooked stuff is still BAIT as far as I’m concerned. To each his/her own!!

    Pay a professional manual writer consolidate and organize the rule books. Nothing against the ROC but the three books need to be condensed into one that is professionally organized. Have the ROC review and provide feedback.

    I just wish hunters would ask first. It annoys the hell out of me when someone I don't even know just come parading into my set. Some have even said "Well it's not posted". Permission is just simple courtesy and at least you could inform a prospective hunter to please avoid certain areas or call the night B4 to inform he will be stalking around on your property. Sorry for the rant---- it just makes me nuts, and that's a short order!

    I’m no Roger Ebert, but here’s my take on Midway, the movie. If you consider CGI to be an abomination to cinema, don’t go. Personally, I thought they used the technology pretty well to complement the cinematic experience. Much better than in Red Tails if anybody saw that flick. If you want perfect historic and technical accuracy, stick to the zillion books and documentaries. If Woody Harrelson puts your knickers in a knot, stay away. Personally, I think he’s decent at acting, that’s what my admission price paid him to do, and he did a fine job portraying ADM Nimitz. At evening’s end, I’m glad I went. It was a great story told with a fair balance of accuracy and cinematic license. The heroes were portrayed as the good guys they were in real life. The Japanese of that era were accurately painted also. And wouldn't you you know it, the Good Guys won again, 77 years later. I might even see it again with my buddy.

    I'll admit that I have my shortcomings, but you guys act like I don't know my business. I've been going to the potty all by myself for several years now. My wife and I have been married to one another for 45 years come the 22d of this month and she has seen to it. And, I have my wife trained exactly the way she wants me!

    I guess after his stint in the NAVY and helped whoop up on the Japanese in the Pacific, he was sent to Germany in the Air Force to help Patton whoop up on the Germans..... Just think, if some newspaper columnist reads my post, they will be totally confused now..... ..........Widder

    House sold the day before it was listed, to a neighbor at our asking price. The house was paid for too. Moved because Ima received a promotion within Sam's Club, and there was an opening here. If you know my wife's family history (last name is Schofield) her family has deep roots here. As soon as we get settled in. We will be checking out the local SASS clubs for sure Thank you all for the welcome to our forever home. OLG

    Go with the comp. They don't add much weight but tend to work better than loose shot because the forward movement of the mercury offsets the recoil without adding a bunch of weight. You will want to change the angle when you cut and mount the new pad. Most shotguns are setup for arial targets. but we shoot toward the ground. What happens is the sharp angel tends to dig in and the ladies tend to drop the back end and then tend to shoot high over the targets. My rule as to how long the stocks need to be for the ladies is with the gun shouldered, the thumb of the trigger finger hand should be about 2” but not more than 3” from her nose. This allows more bend in the elbow. Anytime the elbow is extended beyond 90 degree she will have a tuff time holding the gun up.

    The cocked loaded rifle, w/o ammo in the chamber should be a SDQ. The reason being that it’s easy enough to accidentally crank a round into the chamber and then, if it’s going to discharge accidentally, it’s likely safer that happen at the loading table. Same way with the shotgun. No one knows that it’s unloaded if it snaps shut. SDQ The penalties are there to reinforce the spirit of the rules, and to instill attention to safety. Changing these infractions to “no calls” will only lead to carelessness. But, you decide which path to take. Cat Brules

    Here's a tidbit on the "Real ID." The wife had to get hers this year but DMV wouldn't accept her "Certificate of live birth" from an Indiana hospital so we had to get a copy of her actual birth certificate. While getting it I asked the lady behind the counter just how a certificate of live birth could vet Obama to be President for 8 years but wasn't good enough to get a simple drivers license. You know the old saying, "If looks could kill?" Yup, nuff said.

    May go and watch in person!! My son’s book about playing catch every day in 2018 has been accepted for publication by one of the big publishing houses, and will hit the shelves on September 8, 2020. I can see the possibility of a book signing/pre-release publicity event at that game! I’m kinda proud, can you tell??

    Only thing wrong with the French army in both WWI and WWII was their lousy leadership. The soldiers were a tough as nails and very courageous bunch who fought gallantly to their last breath even when the odds were so highly stacked against them. Like in Dunkirk and the break they afforded the British.

    Traction control is a must with electric vehicles. I'm extremely positive about my negativity so, while elctric doesn't use fossil fuels, the mining to get lithium and then recycling the batteries is way hard on the environment.

    I went for 15 years with a pair of saddlebags over my shoulder while carrying my guns. In fact, I used those saddlebags at the last monthly. A cart works but you can get by without one for as long as you want.

    Left over roast turkey with left over chicken gravy; Chow chow (the kind without tomatoes, quite spicy); cranberry, maraschino cherry and pecan salad; the last two slices of home made white bread; iced southern sweet tea; and two oatmeal raisin cookies from the bakery. My dog and I eat pretty well, way too much and way too often, but my kids can tell Dad ain't starving. That's The first thing they check when they visit. They grew up without much (as did my wife and I before we met) and they are certain sure I'm going to die of starvation. Actually there was a time when that was true. Now I think it's just a family ritual.
